EMDR

EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing

EMDR – You might want to ask yourself, what exactly is this emdr? it is a form of psychotherapy that was developed to resolve symptoms resulting from disturbing and unresolved life experiences. It uses a structured approach to address past, present, and future aspects of disturbing memories. The approach was developed by Francine Shapiro to resolve the development of trauma-related disorders as resulting from exposure to a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.

EMDR Process

When a person recalls a distressing memory, the person can re-experience what they saw, heard, smelt, tasted or felt, which can be intense. By alternating left-right stimulation of the brain with eye movements, patients can stimulate the “frozen” information processing system. During the process, the distressing memories seem to lose their intensity so that the memories are less distressing and seem more like ‘ordinary’ memories.

Trauma-related disorders could be as a result of a traumatic or distressing event, such as rape or military combat.  I’ll be discussing the military combat which is what really interests me. Are our veterans really being treated fairly when it comes to trauma, PTSD and the side effects of war? Does this so-called emdr really work? Although I have heard of cases where clinics use the emdr for other purposes, other than what has mentioned above, since it is not official, I will not mention it here.

EMDR – Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing therapy process and procedures, according to Francine Shapiro involves eight phases to have a complete and effective emdr treatment.   This phases or seasons are taking patient history, discussing the overall treatment plan, identify the patient safe place, to serve as a reset mode when or during unbearable reminders of the past traumatic events, identifying the negative cognition, the installation phase, identifying pain or discomfort, debriefing, and re-evaluation.

As long as traumatic memories go unprocessed, they may be triggered by experiences or interactions in your current life, shifting and coloring your perceptions. Some people need more than conversations and replacement thoughts to resolve what is happening in their minds and bodies. Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing, EMDR psychotherapy, provides a proven therapeutic alternative
